The Premier League champions, Manchester City, are looking out for Julian Nagelsmann as a potential replacement for Pep Guardiola. The Spanish manager who arrived in the top flight of English football in 2016 had an amazing spell. Adding 17 trophies to the almost empty cabinent and filling the empty stadium with fans, Guardiola has proved all odds. With Guardiola announcing his stint is coming to an end, Manchester City finds reliability in the young German manager Julian Nagelsmann. Pep has transformed the sky blues with his sheer strategic mind and talent. He has dominated Europe since the beginning of his career with Barcelona and did not disappoint the Bavarians either. However, his contribution to Manchester City has left the Cityzens fall in awe of his quality. It will be difficult for them to accept a new boss on the sidelines during heated games.

Why Julian Nagelsmann is an Ideal Replacement for Guardiola at Manchester?

The German manager brings in a lot of modernity and youthfulness to a dynamic squad. Both Guardiola and Nagelsmann have previously coached Bayern Munich and are familiar with the philosophy. The commonality in their tactical mindset brings about a ground that can be suitable for the sky blues. Pep is arguably Manchester City’s greatest ever manager, and besides, any new one on the job will have big shoes to fill. Julian Nagelsmann is one of the managers with experience with top-tier players. He has a sense of authority within himself, which gives him an edge in managing big names.

Guardiola has, however, mentioned staying at the Etihad for one more season. He has been in the Premier League, and with him winning everything there is at the club, Pep is looking for a new challenge. The club that has created history by winning the league for consequential four times under his spell is now a winning machine that has to be harnessed by someone equally strategic and powerful. Julian Nagelsmann boasts an impressive resume with managing clubs like RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, and presently the German national team. The young boss’ had a complicated stint at Bayern Munich with many pundits terming his sacking at the club as “Unjustified.” After a significant break from club football and Champions League, it might prove to be a great comeback for the German. Nagelsmann has a contract running with the national team till 2026, after which many clubs will be interested in signing him. City and Chelsea will always remain favourites to land him.
